Summer just got better at Kennesaw State University. KSU’s College of Continuing and Professional Education has expanded its Summer University camps program providing a creative outlet for kids. 

Rising first through 12th-graders don’t want to miss the weeklong classes at this innovative camp where learning is fun. This summer, an eighth week added nearly 60 offerings. Camps will be held from June 1 to July 24, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at KSU Center.

“The kids not only enjoy the classes but also the positive interactions with our staff,” said Carla Green, program manager. 

“We have a very engaging staff that builds a great rapport with our students which fosters an environment of creativity,” Green said. 

One thousand youth are expected to experience the one-of-kind camps. A variety of subjects are offered such as culinary, arts, technology, leadership, performing arts and more. Camp favorites include Chet Austin Teen Leadership Academy, Creative Confections, Stop-Motion Moving Making, and Cartooning. KSU mascot Scrappy the Owl will meet and greet each camper on Monday mornings. …
